Black Stars goalkeeper Richard Ofori has attributed consistency as the key to his fantastic form in the South African top-flight with Maritzburg United. 

The 26-year-old has kept an impressive 10 clean sheets in 24 matches and is only one behind SuperSport United’s Ronwen Williams who tops the table with 11.

Ofori has also conceded just 17 goals with only Mamelodi Sundowns having given away fewer goals with 15 strikes against them.

His fantastic form has seen been linked with Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs while Belgian side Gent have reportedly expressed interest.

"Every game you need to play your best, I have my best moment in every game,” he told his club’s website. “My best moment is to be there for the team, so I cannot specifically point to any game," he said.

On his best game os far this campaign, he said, "This season we have done our best and played so many important games and got victories, so I cannot specifically pick any game. But I remember the moment against Chiefs [in the Telkom Knockout semifinal] where we qualified for the cup final."

Ofori has been keeping fit at home during the coronavirus lockdown and says he keeps busy by training and playing tennis across his garden wall.

"I keep myself busy with the training program. I also play tennis with my neighbour. I am much into tennis and I love to play."

The former Wa All Stars shot-stopper has been nominated for the 2019/20 South Africa Premier League Best Player award as well as Goalkeeper of the season.
